Quoted from Junglist:

So I guess it's a bit of an impossible question to answer, but with Dwight on Star Wars, are we thinking no more code updates then?

it wouldn't surprise me, which is total bs.

#17952 4 years ago

I am hoping the opposite-time to get some updates done!

That would be depressing.

We should at least get a bugfix update. There are quite a few documented, including a random reboot (which may be related to the node board dropping below the voltage threshold that's a common problem with all spike machines).

#17955 4 years ago

It would seem, based om history, to see 1 more update to polish off GB.
Its continuing to sell well, and I havent heard a line date on SW....has anyone?

Sounds like a broken or shorted wire. Look underneath where those buttons are and see it there's any wire ends visible or of some of the pegs are bent and touching.

If no broken wires are found underneath the switch assembly, power down the machine, then re-seat the connectors on the cabinet node board. Fire it back up and see what happens.

i'm guessing so yes - id take a bug fixed version of the code if nothing else.

Anyone having air balls fly off the left
Subway ramp towards the left side? Just started to get these semi-regularly - checked the ramp and it's all good from what I can tell?

Thanks
Neil.

I found having a Cliffy protector on the drop target to be a major contributor. Adjusting the target height was a given and centering the target (left to right) greatly reduced the issue. However, it wasn't until the Cliffy was removed did the problem all but go away. Now the ramp is super smooth.

I might be having this issue- I need to test more. It appears the ramp on the left side is pulling away from the pf. Maybe only a fraction but it's enough to make the ball go airborne.

I believe it's the coil strength. It's not labelled as flipper strength.

stern abandoned us!

#17971 2 years ago

There is a pretty active club thread for Ghostbusters. This thread was the pre launch hype thread. Those usually die after launch.

Imagine if we get a code update...#blowtheroofoff

#17975 2 years ago

Maybe with a new GB movie coming out in 2020 it will convince Stern to step up... ... ...
